New Video Interview

Our Friends from Spread the Word interview Hanna Ali on her short story collection The Story of Us.


Short Story themes

Watch the video below and hear Hanna explain the different themes she navigates in her outstanding short story collection:

"It's a collection [...] about womanhood. It’s about overcoming different obstacles. It’s not necessarily just about being Somali; it’s about what it means to be a woman, what it means to be black, Muslim, etc., navigating all the different levels of being a woman, I suppose."
